Upon cursory glance, it seems that there are some stories in here that might have been better in one of the 'mail fail' threads. That said the re-organisation is still fresh, we all make mistakes, and I don't think anybody will learn or gain anything by picking at this any further.

I'm not convinced of that. Many examples here are trivial, and I think the usual reason is that the headline is written by a sub-editor who hasn't read the article properly.
I favour moving "Headline vs story" elsewhere.

If you'll allow a small pedantic digression, the section is currently called "The Dacre Drip", not the original (coined by Malcolm, I believe) "Dacre's Drip" - which I consider to be better.

It would be good if this small error could be rectified.

Indeed I did describe it thus, and you are correct about the formulation.

We might also have a 'Dacre's Dystopia' section, for descriptions of the dysfunctional world recognised only in the Mail's alternative reality.

Where did I read that the on-line subbing had been outsourced to Australia somewhere?

Was it in P E ?

City high-flyer in sex bias case brings hearing to a halt to breastfeed her baby

Having brought Heidi to the tribunal in central London, Miss Tantum left to breastfeed her during a break.
Her fiancé Stuart Tozer and his mother have also been on hand to look after the baby in the four-day hearing.
. . and as if to prove a point, she proved exactly why she was let go, by interrupting her own unfair dismissal proceedings by breastfeeding . . . frankly I wouldn't want her as my lawyer with a unfocused attitude like that
